Speaking Up & Self-Objectification

Article from the Huffington Post this past July examines the double standards for women (and in Hollywood). Katherine Heigl = finally a Hollywood Icon who speaks up about sexism!

Ms. Magazine explores issues of women’s self objectification, sparked from media images.

Awesome quote from article author Caroline Heldman:

 What would disappear from our lives if we stopped seeing ourselves as objects? Painful high heels? Body hatred? Constant dieting? Liposuction? It’s hard to know. Perhaps the most striking outcome of self-objectification is the difficulty women have in imagining identities and sexualities truly our own. In solidarity, we can start on this path, however confusing and difficult it may be.

Way to ROCK, Katherine and Caroline! Thanks for speaking up against the double standards placed on women everywhere in this country and around the world.
